More of my work

I have worked with many highly respected companies, including JWT, Air Canada, Quebecor, CBC-TV, Just for Laughs, Bleublancrouge and DentsuBos. Previous and current advertising and promotional clients include VISA/CIBC, American Express, BOB ad agency, Devimco Immobilier, KOZE ad agency, CloudRaker (client: Kijiji Canada), CanLii.org, FitCorps, Blackout Fitness, IATA, Aiglon College, City of Villars-sur-Ollon, (Switzerland), among others.

I have written 2,200+ editorial, promotional, corporate and media tweets for DentsuBos’ client Hitachi (Twitter handle: @HitachiGlobal – with 26,000 followers) and I have produced summary copy for roughly 120 articles for the Hitachi microsite: http://www.hitachi.com/businesses/innovation/case_studies/index.html. In addition to drafting the copy for the twitter handle and the microsite, I also negotiate publishing rights, draft titles, and most importantly, ensure the copy is error-free and appropriate for the client.

The best of the Hitachi microsite summaries appear in a Hitachi-branded newsletter and is emailed to thousands of people worldwide. The site itself is translated into multiple languages for maximum reach, including Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, etc.

I have created and written multiple campaigns for KIJIJI CANADA (ad agency CloudRaker). These include Facebook Carousel ads, Facebook Image ads, banner ads (Postmedia), newsletter copy, etc.

That’s Good But Can You Handle the Net? YES.

Aside from working on the Hitachi twitter account and Hitachi microsite since 2013 and the Kijiji Canada ad campaigns for Facebook, I was also the European Editor for wcities, a company that orders, edits and customizes original digital reviews of hotels, restaurants, events, etc. in more than 500 cities worldwide, in five different languages. The fully customizable content was purchased by Yahoo, British Telecom and AOL, among others, and appeared on their respective websites for years. I worked on the retailer StyleXchange‘s website and I edited its magazine, the award-winning, Strut.
